On Thursday 26th and Friday 27th, myself and an army of volunteers students from the Computer Science department at Queens University took part in delivering workshops for 250-300 Northern Irish schoolkids from across the province, as part of the BBC Make It Digital event.
The event was held at BBC Blackstaff studios in Belfast and ran from the 26th – 28th, although we were only doing Raspberry Pi workshops on the 26th – 27th.
The feedback from the kids was excellent, with many having to be prised from the Raspberry Pis at the end of the sessions.
And they certainly kept the volunteers busy with plenty of questions on how they could expand on the initial worksheets to create even more awesome stuff.
And they were pretty keen to show off the cool stuff they had made to their teachers!
Huge thanks to my army of volunteers from Queens University Computer Science department and thanks to the department for supporting the activity!
